Now in its second season, Hershey Area All Things Diversity is a free series of programs coordinated by Derry Township and The Hershey Story, The Museum on Chocolate Avenue. This five-part series is a wonderful opportunity for each of us to broaden our intellectual horizons and embrace the diversity that’s right here in our community.
The first session, Empowering Women and Girls, is on September 12. Presenter Sharice Johnson is the Senior Division, Student Programs Leader at Milton Hershey School. She created Girls Grace, an annual event which helps female students build character and confidence through keynote speakers and activities that inspire students to pursue their dreams.
“Girls Grace is an investment in our female students’ development toward becoming strong, successful young women,” said Sharice. “By participating in Girls Grace, they discover more about themselves, learn how to empower and support their peers, find time for self-reflection, and have some girl fun.”
